Diez Siglos Sauvignon Blanc 2018

13.99

Description

From a privileged parcel of Sauvignon Blanc at 750m altitude, the diurnal shift between high day time temperatures and often bitter cold at night ensures the development of characteristic tropical fruit flavours and refreshing acidity to counter.

Quite intense on the nose, with exotic fruit sweetness — passion fruit, guava and pineapple — and grassy, floral elements hinting at something more savoury. Crisp and refreshing from the off, those tropical fruits join pear and melon in a well-rounded mid-palate, with gooseberry and lime providing a clean, mouthwatering finish.

Superb with any shellfish, serve up with pan-fried shrimp in a little garlic butter.

Producer: Diez Siglos

One of the few wineries we work with that are younger than ourselves, Diez Siglos celebrated their tenth birthday in 2019! The company was established as a cooperative of 65 growers with the common interest of protecting and enhancing the reputation of Rueda's signature grape, and one of Spain's best white varietals, Verdejo. Experienced winemakers were brought in and combine traditional techniques with cutting-edge technology in a state of the art new facility just south of Valladodid.

With 380 hectares of vines to hand at an average 750m above sea-level, the winemakers are spoilt for choice in terms of fruit, allowing for different blending, fermentation and maturation techniques for a range of wines that truly showcase Rueda. It's not just Verdejo too, with Sauvignon Blanc, Viura and Tempranillo also grown, although we suspect there's much more to come from this exciting new venture.
